Pixar turned to female exployees to make sure 'Inside Out' rang true

27 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My first trip to Pixar’s Emeryville campus was 13 years ago. That alone was enough to give me pause when I was invited to the “Inside Out” press day. I’ve done it. I’ve taken the tour. I’ve seen the campus. I’ve met the artists and I’ve seen their amazing work spaces and I’ve had a chance to walk through pretty much every department. I remember standing outside the server room my first time up, looking in at the brain of this remarkable company, amazed at how those racks of black technology represented this collision of all this amazing human artistry. My other hesitation, honestly, was because we were told that we’d be seeing “part” of the movie. I’ve grown wary over the years of seeing movies in chunks because you can’t really react in any meaningful way since you’re not seeing something that’s complete. »

Alfonso Ribeiro Named New Host of ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’

19 May 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Expect a little song and dance in between videos of groin hits, cute kids and crazy cats on “America’s Funniest Home Videos” next season. “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” alum and “Dancing With the Stars” champ Alfonso Ribeiro is taking the reins as host from Tom Bergeron next season.

Ribeiro was one of five finalists in the hunt to follow Bergeron, who has hosted the enduring video-clip series since 2001. ABC’s “Afv” ranks as one of primetime TV’s most family-friendly shows and one with the highest component of multigenerational viewing, a quality that is important to ABC.

The show, which wrapped its 25th anniversary season on Sunday, has become an institution for the Alphabet in its Sunday 7 p.m. slot.

Although the show is built around goofy amateur videos sent in by everyday folks, “Afv” exec producer Vin Di Bona said the host’s role is still crucial. Bergeron, »

Review: 'Inside Out' is simply one of Pixar's most creative films ever

18 May 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — Stop and think about it for a just a minute. Imagine a movie almost completely centered on individual emotions living in a young girl's head. Not a short, but a feature length film. It sounds like some sort of nightmare screenwriting assignment, doesn’t it? How do you explain how the emotions work? Do they control her every action? Do they grow and mature alongside her? How do you make a coherent, entertaining and moving experience out of that concept? Pete Docter, who previously directed one of Pixar's best films, "Up," doesn't make things easy on himself taking on that challenge and it makes the success of "Inside Out" more admirable than it initially might seem. The most important character in "Inside Out" is actually our heroine, Riley (eventually voiced by Kaitlyn Dias). Her birth spurs the creation of the first emotion, Joy (Amy Poehler), but as she grows, »

Crazy, operatic 'Gotham' finale spurs optimism for Season 2

4 May 2015 6:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What if "Gotham" was not the TV series that so many of us thought we needed back in the fall, but what if Bruno Heller's twisty comic book drama has become the TV series we deserve now? Look, if you're going to get hung up on Batman mythology, I'm powerless to tell you that "Gotham" became or ever will become a show that will make you happy.  It's a prequel that almost cannot possibly ever line up with the version of the Caped Crusader that we know from either DC Comics, from the Christopher Nolan films or the early Tim Burton films. And that's frustrating. I can't tell you that it isn't.  The Penguin is rising! The Riddler is cracking! Somebody who may or may not be The Joker is becoming dangerously unhinged! Even Harvey Dent looks to be a couple bum coin flips away from dementia.  And Bruce »

Ride | Review

Ride of Passage: Hunt’s Belated Sophomore Effort Crests Waves of Cliché

Perhaps the most surprising element of note in Helen Hunt’s Ride is the fact that this is her sophomore directorial effort following the 2007 debut Then She Found Me. While the previous film was adapted from a celebrated novel by Elinor Lipman, Hunt concocts her own original scenario here, serving as director, screenwriter, star, and producer. Painfully pedestrian and awkwardly rendered, Hunt’s film devolves into a nagging, ho-hum situational dramedy that spends entirely too much time focused on its anal-retentive protagonist’s break from an elitist shell of pretension rather than the central relationship upon which the narrative’s flaky emotional core is hinged.

Jackie (Hunt), a single, overly determined mother that works as an editor at The New Yorker, is about to see her 18 year old son Angelo (Brenton Thwaites) off to college. But upon going »

First Reactions To Pixar’s Inside Out

6 April 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In late March, journalists in Toronto (including We Got This Covered) got the chance to see an exclusive sneak peek of one of 2015’s most anticipated films, Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out.

The animated comedy, opening in North America on June 19, tells the story of Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias), an adolescent girl moving to San Francisco and trying to adjust to a new life. However, much of the film is not seen through Riley’s eyes; rather, most of it takes place in her mind, as five central emotions guide the young girl. Amy Poehler leads the voice cast as Joy, the bubbly ringleader in the emotion-based headquarters. Joining Poehler is Lewis Black as Anger, Bill Hader as Fear, Mindy Kaling as Disgust and Phyllis Smith as Sadness.

Pete Docter, the film’s co-writer/director, and Inside Out producer Jonas Rivera were both present to introduce the film »

TV Review: ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’

18 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Why NBC chose to cut loose “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” — a series with fine auspices but an uncertain commercial outlook — and hand it to Netflix, which gave the program a two-season commitment, makes considerable business sense. What Netflix gets from acquiring such a relatively conventional property is more questionable, and given the company’s tightly held metrics, unlikely to be satisfactorily answered. In commercial terms, there’s some smart writing in this fish-out-of-water premise, which bears a more-than-passing thematic resemblance to the 1999 movie “Blast From the Past.” But there are also irritating sitcom-like elements, and a nothing-special quality as the show progresses.

Created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock in a “30 Rock” reunion, “The Office’s” Ellie Kemper is perfectly cast as the wide-eyed title character, who in the opening moments emerges from an underground bunker where she’s lived for years, having been told by her cult leader that the world above has been destroyed. »

Gotham: Can Gordon Bounce Back from His Demotion to Arkham?

5 January 2015 2:13 PM, PST | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

Get ready to see a different James Gordon when Fox's Gotham returns Monday.

When viewers last visited Gotham City, Gordon (Ben McKenzie) got wrapped up in a plot concocted by overeager D.A. Harvey Dent (Nicholas D'Agosto) to catch the supposed murderer of Thomas and Martha Wayne. When that suspect ended up shot dead by Gordon's gun (though not by Gordon's hand), Mayor James (Richard Kind) reassigned Gordon to a security detail at Arkham Asylum — a demotion Gordon decided to take rather than cave to City Hall's hopes that he would quit.

Winter TV: Check out all the must-see new shows

Although Gordon seems to be taking everything in stride on Monday's episode (8/7c, Fox), creator and executive producer Bruno Heller says this is an important turning point in the story. "The first half of the season was very much Gordon seeing his way in this strange new world — being surprised and shocked and disillusioned, »

Obvious Child DVD Review

5 January 2015 8:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Gillian Robespierre

Cast: Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffmann, Richard Kind, David Cross

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 85 minutes

When asked about my 20s, I tell people it was a decade-long rollercoaster of mayhem, mistakes, memories and maturity. The decade where you learn about the real world, learning from one’s actions and its consequences. Oh, and learning that ex-boyfriends don’t really pine over you for the rest of their lives.

This is also where we find Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) in Obvious Child. Fidgeting at the gates of the dirty thirties, Donna’s in an emotional crisis right now. Her boyfriend just dumped her for her girlfriend (whom he had been seeing behind her back). The bookstore where she works is closing down, placing her in the unemployment line and she’s worried about not being able to afford her rent. In addition, her relationship with her mother Nancy »
